The Betpal Football Bet of the Day comes from Spain and the Copa del Ray fixture between Levante and Real Zaragoza. The hosts surprised many last season, and have continued to impress this term – but can Zaragoza spring a shock?
Match: Levante v Real Zaragoza
Bet of the Day: Levante win
Best Odds: 2.01 with Pinnacle
Kick Off: 19:00 13/12/2012 (GMT)
Levante have started 2012/13 brightly and have again defied many pre-season predictions from those who forecast a season of struggle. Their home form is particularly strong, with nine wins coming from thirteen overall. Domestically, they have won five of eight in the League, and the three games where they dropped points were versus the top three sides in La Liga – Barcelona, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid. Their recent form is also good, in the last seven they have lost just once (Barcelona). In contrast, Real Zaragoza have lost four of their last seven, and have been beaten five times in their eight away League games. Their only successes on the road have been versus weak teams – Vallecano (13th), Granada (18th) and Espanyol (19th). 6th placed Levante look too strong and a price above evens looks handy.
